Buy Handmade for the Holidays


In an effort to encourage consumers to consider the source of gifts they'll be purchasing this year, there is a new promotion that has been launched that asks people to take the Buy Handmade Pledge. BuyHandmade.org has been created to promote the awareness and importance of buying non-commercially produced items and supporting local artists.

"We encourage all consumers to be aware of the social and environmental implications of their purchases."
"Buying handmade is better for people, better for the environment, and better for giving truly special and well-crafted gifts."

I couldn't have said it better! Please take time to visit BuyHandmade.org and take the pledge!
And do consider buying handmade items throughout the year.
Thank you!
